Nah, Maybe it's just Oak. The end grain doesn't look like Cherry now that I'm looking closer at it.

Someone else will know better than I do, but I think the older handles were either maple or oak. Looks like it might be oak to me.

  So when does one start to collect kettles to keep as "lookers"?  Is it just the rarity of a certain year or color that I should be looking for?
One collects kettles that one likes. If you want to keep it as a looker, or if you want to use it as a cooker, that is totally up to you.  Don't let anyone tell you different.

My opinion is that if it has been cooked on, then it is a cooker.
